Live Music Schedule (no cover charge)

Friday, July 6
Brenneman Brothers 6-9 PM
Rock, Country, and Blues — driven by the passion of the live experience, the Bernemann Brothers Band fits like a favorite pair of blues jeans. You’ll hear classic tunes you love, rare gems that may have escaped you, and even the occasional original composition, all delivered up with an easygoing sense of fun and rock solid musicianship.

Saturday, July 7
The Brothers Allmanac 1-4 PM
The Brothers Allmanac delivers a premier, Midwest rooted tribute to The Allman Brothers Band, playing classics and deep cuts that span the entirety of their storied career. Concert goers are often left saying that if they close their eyes, they feel like they are really listening to The Allman Brothers, from the raw, emotional vocals, the spot-on guitar harmonies and even the thundering double drums you would expect from the real deal.

Randy Mcallister 6-9 PM
Grammy nominated, singer, songwriter, harmonica player, drummer and legend of East Texas Blues/Roots. Roustabout, maverick, spiritual, gritty, amazing, wild, bad-ass, soulful…these are
some of the words used to describe this Texas bonafide blueblood. One of America’s true blue/roots originals, Randy Mcallister has been flying in the face of convention his whole career. No smoke, no mirrors, no choreography, no industry machines.

Sunday, July 8
Kevin B.F. Burt 1-4 PM
For nearly 20 years Kevin “B.F.” Burt has been electrifying audiences throughout the Midwest dispelling the myth that true blues has no roots in Iowa.

No outside food or drink permitted. No cover charge or reservations taken. Feel free to bring chairs & picnic blankets.


Perfectly crafted award-winning whiskey from America’s heartland
